About Penelope Bentley

We live in London and at the weekends go to our home in Suffolk.. I am in the film business and my husband is a lawyer. We have been going to Menorca for the past 25 years and we bought this house in 1995. We have furnished the house for ourselves rather than the rental market and we feel that is is a very comfortable home with beautiful gardens.

Why Penelope Bentley chose Es Mercadal

We are both very well travelled and when we first went to the island we fell in love immediately with the beauty of Menorca and the fact that it was so unspoilt. Even after 20 years we feel that this is a very special place and are very happy that building of any high rise properties is forbidden and that the whole island retains its individuality over main land Spain and it continues to be a very special place. Even in high season, one can escape into remote areas and many of the beaches are very safe and not too crowded... Restaurant offer good value for money for families and the sports facilities are excellent.

What makes this villa unique

The property is well furnished and very comfortable and is 5 minutes walk for the local supermarket and some very good eating places. The Gardens are very well tended throughout the year and there is a great terrace for evening dining where one can be totally secluded... The pool is a good size and there is also a jacuzzi at the back that seats at least 4 people... there are a number of terrasses around the house and for those who want shade throughout the day this is not a problem.

This Villa was absolutely perfect for our family of grandparents, parents and young teens. Plenty of space, different areas inside and out to relax. The pool was the best part, the kids loved it and especially enjoyed swimming at night with the beautiful pool lights. The view is fabulous we loved watching the sunset behind the hills. The location is great close enough to walk to the beach, supermarkets, restaurants and bars. Penny the owner was great, as were any other staff we made contact with. Highly recommended. We look forward to going back again.

Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family holiday here for 6 adults and one child. The villa and gardens are spacious and fully equipped with everything you could need, great pool and outdoor Jacuzzi, a BBQ and outdoor and indoor dining areas. There is a fully equipped kitchen, plenty of wardrobe space and hangers plus TV and Wi-Fi if you need it. There is no aircon but rooms are equipped with large fans. The location is excellent, quiet and private, with a supermarket and 3 restaurants just a few minutes walk up the road and more options nearby. Fornells itself, with its marina, is only 5 minutes or so by car with lots more eating options and supermarket and there are activities such as snorkeling and kayaking etc available for the more active. The main towns, Mahon and Cuidadela are about half an hour's drive at opposite ends of the island. The owner, Penny, could not have been more helpful and in the event of any problems (we didn't have any) Gill from the property management company is only a couple of minutes away. Highly recommended.

Beautiful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in the villa - the pool, grounds and view are especially great. Everything you need is provided and Penny was a great help and source of knowledge! The area has shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance and although Fornells is quite popular, it certainly felt that the villa was quiet and away from the crowds. We will certainly be back to Casa Lavanda so we can explore more of the Island....

Spacious villa, Fidel for a family vacation.

  • 4 of 5

We have just had a wonderful holiday with our grown up family in this well appointed villa in our favourite part of Menorca.

The villa is very spacious and comfortable with good wifi. Within the villa there is ample dining space with a dining table and kitchen table, plus a fabulous circular table outside in the shaded BBQ area with ample seating for 8. The pool is a great size and we were very pleased to see that the pool guy came twice during our 10 night stay for to clean it.

From a practical point of view there is ample wardrobe and drawer space in all the bedrooms and an abundance of hangers which i really appreciated. The showers are good and despite all of us getting ready in a short window of time, there was never any shortage off hot water.

The landscaped gardens are beautiful and the veranda, with its sofa and chairs at the front of the property provided some lovely shade and an incredible view throughout the day.

We did have one request of the owner as when we arrived there were no sunshades with the sun loungers. I have to say this was addressed very promptly and Gill from MC property management provided us with two fab shades with stands on behalf of Penny the owner. I feel that the owners genuinely care and want guests to really enjoy their stay, a lovely touch was a bottle of fizz waiting for us on our arrival.

The villa is also conveniently located just 5 mins away from a small supermarket and 3 very good restaurants.

I have to say we would without doubt return to this villa in the future.

Perfect villa for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa had four good sized bedrooms and two large bathrooms with very comfortable sofas and two tables perfect for indoor dining if the need arises. There was a large table outside with plenty of chairs and there was plenty of loungers. The pool was big and very clean as was the jacuzzi and it was lovely to have the choice of the two. The villa was very well equipped with plenty of crockery and glasses. It was very peaceful at the villa and we had a lovely holiday and will definetely be back as we love Platges de Fornells which has a lovely beach and good selection of restaurants on the doorstep,
